    I only found out about LEGO's policy on not making military toys about 20years later.

    The first things I built were elastic band powered guns to fire blocks at the a natural target known as "younger brother" (the cat was too fast)
    I even had a semi-automatic self-loading sub machine gun and a ballpoint pen crossbow.

    :rofl:

    Normal kid - Mom says to stop throwing blocks, kid says, "Awwww, okay." :grumpy:

    Smart kid - Mom says to stop throwing blocks, kid says, "Oh, okay, then I'll build an elastic band powered gun to launch them!" :biggrin:

    ok, the long red sticks are the cartridges, and there seems to be a hammer... so its an immitation of an average handgun.... wheres the trigger?

    Near as I can tell there is a motor hooked up to it, so probably automated, and therefore no trigger.
